Set to debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf is lighter, bigger, safer, and more fuel efficient than the version it replaces. All three versions of the new golf, the entry-level 1.4-liter gasoline engine, the 2.0-liter TDI clean diesel, and the GTI, will be on display and will be ready for sale during the first half of 2014.
Also, the Golf will be the first Volkswagen vehicle to use the company’s new “MQB” components matrix that offers new safety features and technology, including collision avoidance, lane departure systems, and updated infotainment options. Coming standard for the first time on a Volkswagen is the multi-collision brake system, along with a proactive passenger protection system.
Designers of the Golf have given the vehicle a new edge, with the goal of making it more independent, sophisticated, and durable than other compact cars. The front wheels have been moved 43 millimeters forward, making the front look shorter. Along with these changes, the 2015 Volkswagen Golf has maintained its signature design features. After seven generations, the Golf remains as one of Volkswagen’s top vehicles. Read the 2015 Volkswagen Golf Debut to learn more.
